Mitch Winehouse said the overriding sentiment he and other families of addicts feel is guilt in failing to protect them. The 58-year-old former taxi driver told the home affairs select committee of his personal experiences while advising MPs on drug policy. He said: Almost everyone who has a relative who is an addict feels they could have done better. I have felt exactly the same way. People have said to me, Why didnt you section her (Amy)? Why didnt you lock her in a room? All of this is, of course, ridiculous. Mr Winehouse added: My fam- ily were very fortunate. We were able to afford the best doctors and rehabilitation services. But for most families there are very few facilities available. Speaking beforehand, Mr Winehouse called for more fund- ing, saying: Last year the Government spent 400m on drug rehabilitation, and yet if anybody wants to come off drugs volun- tarily theres very little help. He also said he did not want to focus on his 26-year-old daughter, but added: I wouldnt be in this position, with politicians and parents of addicts phoning me up, if it wasnt for who I am. Committee chairman and MP Keith Vaz said: We are pleased Mr Winehouse has agreed to share with us research on the damaging effects of drug abuse on families.

Todays Public Health Observatory report also shows soaring rates of alcohol- related hospital admissions and a rising number of deaths from chronic liver disease. Last year more than 560,000 drinkers in the country needed hospital treatment -- a rise of six per cent on the previous year. Professor Mark Bellis, director of the North West Public Health Observatory, said: Without substantial change in drinking behaviours, the annual number of alcohol-related admissions to hospitals in England is on course to exceed one million per year in two years. Such admissions are still only the tip of the iceberg with many people attending accident and emergency units, GPs and pharmacies to treat health conditions resulting from alcohol use. Gordon Brown has outlined moves to enable councils to suspend 24-hour licensing where it is linked to antisocial behaviour -- but this week backed off the plan after pressure from the drinks industry. Last week experts from Sainsburys, Asda and Waitrose told a health select committee that minimum pricing of alcohol would hit poor families, cause job losses and could even create a black market in illegal alcohol.

HUNDREDS of Barclays customers lost thousands of pounds after their cards were apparently swallowed by the banks tampered-with ATMs. The fraud, known as a Lebanese Loop, was conceived by eastern European gangs and has hit ATMs in London, Essex, West Sussex, Leicestershire and Wales. Barclays said it is tackling the fraud by upgrading its machines.
